The Custom Covers Thread

Recommended Posts

Excellent! Thanks!

Since FSM's The Paper Chase artwork is so ugly, has anyone ever made a custom cover using the original poster art?

Or maybe a custom Conrack cover using it's original poster art?

Well decided to do full set of covers for my custom edit of Avatar's score. What I mean by custom edit is that cues run into each other like they do in the film. Since they're so big I'll just post the direct links to them.

It came out before the Collector's Edition so was essentially completely nullified by that release, but I think it has a few seconds here and there that didn't make the CE... I haven't investigated yet though.

Has anybody ever made - or would anybody like to make - a custom Quantum Of Solace front cover (saying "Complete Motion Picture Score") using the art from this poster?

I prefer it over the OST cover as well as the "shadow" poster used for most custom covers... though over all, QOS had a pretty poor art campaign

Thanks!

Oh, there is? I did not realize that; I thought those where the only missing cues.

Do you know how much music remains unreleased?

That can stay missing as far as I'm concerned.

Uggghhh what an awful song. Right up there with Madonna and Sheryl Crow's awful efforts.

I agree. Yuck!!!!!! :down: :down: :down: :down: :down:

Oh, what do people have against Crow's TND?

The answer is in Jason's post. The problem with the song TND is that, as Arnold scored the film using "Surrender", the placement of TND over the main titles instantly takes away all musical, and thematic unity. In other words, there is nothing musically on which to hang the film.

Has anyone tried to sync-up "Surrender" with TND's main titles?

I wouldn't know, I never saw the movie. I only know the song as...a song.

Taken on its own merit, it's not a bad song. The trouble is that, as a bond song, Crow's "o.k., I'm bored with this, now" delivery is just not Bond-esque enough. "Surrender" is big, bold and brassy, and says "BOND!!!"

Besides, k.d.Lang's interpretation is fantastic. Boy, has that woman got a great pair of lungs!

'TND' is pretty good, but like all of the Brosnan era songs, nothing really special.

You don't like "GoldenEye"??!! :eek: That's my karaoke piece, that is, and, yes, I CAN do the falsetto at the end! :P

I don't know if this link has been posted but for those looking for covers for the Cast & Crew promos for Pixar scores might want to check here:

Just go to each film and click on the Soundtrack, at the bottom of the page should be images for the Cast & Crew discs. Much more colorful than some of the ones used on the actual CD.

Does anybody have a good Attack Of The Clones custom front covers? Maybe ones that say Complete Score? Maybe ones that feature one of the "Padme with a ripped white shirt" pics? :)

If Sony did an AOTC UE, I wonder if it would have a big blue faced Count Dooku staring at you..........

I made a cover from AOTC UE a few months ago, but i haven't finished it yet.

Oooh that's cool too! Keep em coming if anybody else has any good AOTC stuff - or wants to cook one up!

How about Jaws? I use the original LP cover art for the LP on my ipod, but since I'll be replacing the Decca with my own custom edit of the Decca in chronological order, I was thinking of giving it a custom cover.

Is there any cool alternate posters made for the film that anyone has ever made into a custom over, or would like to try to do so now? I seem to remember seeing a cool poster somewhat recently in some thread actually...I think it showed all the characters and not just the shark...

EDIT: It was this poster!

I'd love to see a custom cover utilizing that!

The artwork you used for ROTS doesnt look familiar to me. Does anyone have a link to it in its original format?

Wow, nice work Charlie.

I'm using the old LP covers for the original trilogy in iTunes.

Thanks. I have the ESB LP separate and I use the original cover for that.

It's from issue 1 of the comic. I tried to use images not regularly used.

That's the image I was thinking of. It's hard to come up with a good alternate Jaws cover. The original image used is so perfect and no other artwork has been done, other than slight changes in the original poster / LP artwork. I suppose one could take a scene from the film or a shot of a great white.

This image is one I might consider:
